Dr. Oz and the Medicine Hunter explore the medicinal properties of essential oils. Not only do they smell good, but they can make you feel better.

  • Manuka oil is good for cuts and scrapes thanks to its antifungal qualities. It promotes faster healing of the skin.
  • Smelling lavender oil can reduce the stress hormones in your blood. For help sleeping at night, put some on your pillow.
  • Peppermint oil is one of the few essential oils that can be ingested. Mix with water to relieve indigestion and ease the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome.
